About this event

The Chapelcross effluent pipeline was built to take one million gallons of water per day from the sites cooling towers to the sea. The design life of the pipeline was 25 years and following commencement of the sites decommissioning it was identified that that remedial works were required to maintain a service life to facilitate decommissioning activities.

This presentation will explain the history, the design, procurement and installation of the new pipeline and the difficulties experienced before success was achieved.

Organised by Cumbria Branch in conjunction with the Institute of Asset Management.
